my advice:
“Being organized and able to multi-task are the secrets to any woman’s success.”

my to-do list habits

I have a 5-week calendar on my wall in the kitchen where most things get written down – everything from schedules to appointments and even plans with friends. Everyone in the house has their own colored marker so that we can easily figure out who needs to be where. I also keep a personal calendar that I carry with me and a calendar for my au pair, as well, which I update with the things she is responsible for. Despite all of this, I still forget a lot of stuff.
